  • Georgia RB Nick Chubb injures left knee against Tennessee (Video)

    Nick Bromberg at Dr. Saturday 52 mins ago

    Georgia running back Nick Chubb suffered what appeared to be a serious injury to his left leg on the first play from scrimmage Saturday against Tennessee.

    Chubb first landed awkwardly on his left leg. Then he landed really awkwardly as he was spun around while tumbling toward the sidelines. Here's the video. Just a warning, it may make you squeamish.

    Here is how Nick Chubb got injured. First play of the game.

    He was looked at by Georgia's medical staff on the sidelines and helped off the field to a training table on the Georgia sideline. He was then taken to the locker room on a cart with an ice bag wrapped around his left knee. According to CBS sideline reporter Allie LaForce, Chubb collapsed on his way to the cart.

    Chubb collapsed after leaving training table on way to cart and regained consciousness once on cart. Was taken to locker room.

    The sophomore running back entered the Tennessee game looking for his 14th-straight 100-yard rushing game. His 13th-straight game, a Georgia record, came in the Bulldogs' Week 5 loss to Alabama.

  • Laquon Treadwell made this one-handed TD catch look easy (Video)

    Nick Bromberg at Dr. Saturday 1 hr ago

    Yeah, Laquon Treadwell was wide open, but there's not much you can do to stop a catch like the one he made in the third quarter against New Mexico State on Saturday.

    The Rebels were leading 38-3 when Treadwelll made this incredible one-handed catch. And not only did he make it look routine (and stayed inbounds), he scored his second touchdown of the day on it.

    We're comfortable saying it is one of the best catches of the season. Here's another angle.

    Treadwell, who came back in 2015 after suffering a gruesome season-ending leg injury against Auburn in 2014, has eight catches for 136 yards against the Aggies. The blowout is a nice bounceback game for Ole Miss, who suffered its first loss of 2015 against Florida in Week 5.

  • Laquan McGowan scores touchdown for Baylor vs. Kansas (Video)

    Nick Bromberg at Dr. Saturday 3 hrs ago

    Baylor's Laquan McGowan has his first touchdown of 2015. And it's as beautiful as we hoped.

    The 410-pound tight end slipped out of the backfield unnoticed (how?) and put Baylor up 38-7 on Kansas in the second quarter.


    Don't you feel sorry for the Kansas player that tried to tackle him as he rumbled into the end zone?

    McGowan, who is also 6-7, had the first catch of his career against Michigan State in the 2015 Cotton Bowl. It was an 18-yard touchdown. His catch against Kansas was the second catch of his career. That's pretty good efficiency.

    Baylor is absolutely toying with the Jayhawks so far. The Bears entered the game as a 45-point favorite. Maybe McGowan can get his second touchodwn of the game. At this point, it's really the only reason to watch the game any longer.

  • Colby Rasmus continues postseason tear with third homer in three games

    Nick Bromberg at Big League Stew 20 hrs ago

    Rasmus hit his third home run in three postseason games and also drove in a run with a double in the first inning in the Astros' 5-4 loss to the Kansas City Royals in Game 2 of the American League Division Series.

    The double, which drove in George Springer to give the Astros a 1-0 lead, meant Rasmus became the first player in MLB history to have extra-base hits in each of his first six postseason games. Rasmus played in three games with the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2009 National League Division Series. He doubled in each of those games.

    "I feel pretty good at the plate," Rasmus, still the leader in the postseason party hero running, said. "What I've got going is working right now and I'm making adjustments to the pitches I'm throwing and it's going in my favor."

  • UCLA P Adam Searl suspended after arrest for sexual assault

    Nick Bromberg at Dr. Saturday 1 day ago

    UCLA has suspended punter Adam Searl indefinitely following his arrest in connection with an alleged sexual assault in October of 2014.

    According to KTLA, the alleged victim identified Searl as her assailant.

    Searl’s arrest came after an “exhaustive investigation” in which the victim identified Searl as her attacker, LAPD said in a news release.

    The victim met her attacker outside an off-campus party on Oct. 19, 2014, and went to a nearby residence with her. She fell asleep and awoke to find herself being sexually assaulted, police said.

    Searl's arrest was on three counts of suspicion of rape. His bail was set at $300,000. He was arrested Thursday afternoon and posted bail Thursday evening. The LAPD said the case will be taken to the Los Angelese County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday.

    Searl, a walk-on redshirt sophomore, didn't record a punt in UCLA's first four games. He punted five times against Arizona State in Week 5 for an average of 39 yards a punt. He had 11 punts for UCLA in 2014.

  • Spread Options: Dr. Saturday's Week 6 picks against the spread

    Nick Bromberg at Dr. Saturday 1 day ago

    Hey! We had a great week in Week 5. After an 8-2 week, we're now at 23-21-6 on the season. Let's get further above .500.

    Texas (+17) vs. Oklahoma, Noon ET: All signs point to this game being a blowout. Oklahoma is rolling and the Longhorns ... well, you know they're in disarray not only on the field but also on social media. But there's something that makes us think Texas keeps this close. Is it the insanity? Probably. But let's see what the heck happens.

    Iowa State at Texas Tech (-10.5), 3:30 p.m. ET: What would this line be if Texas Tech kept it close against Baylor? A week after almost beating TCU, Tech's defense failed to show up against the Bears while Iowa State pummeled Kansas. Yeah, it's Kansas. The Red Raiders will get back on track at home. Iowa State's defense isn't strong enough to keep this close.

    Northwestern at Michigan (OVER 34), 3:30 p.m. ET: Yes, the over/under for this game is less than five total touchdowns. Northwestern and Michigan are giving up a combined 15 points per game. So we're going to play the opposite game and look for a relative offensive explosion. Northwestern covers (+7.5) and the winner scores 20 or more.

  • D'haquille Williams reportedly punched Auburn player at bar

    Nick Bromberg at Dr. Saturday 1 day ago

    Dismissed Auburn WR D'haquille Williams reportedly punched then-teammate Xavier Dampeer in a bar incident over the weekend.

    Williams was dismissed from the team on Monday. According to the Alabama News Network, Dampeer was one of four people Williams punched at the bar. The dispute allegedly began when a friend of Williams was told he was violating the bar's dress code by wearing sunglasses. Dampeer was treated and released from a hospital.

    The source close to the program indicates Dampeer was one of Williams' alleged victims.The Auburn police department says Williams has not been accused of any criminal act and has not been charged. "We cannot file charges until the injured person(s) comes forward. Unless an officer personally sees a fight, no arrests can be made," Auburn Police Chief Paul Register told Alabama News Network on Thursday.

  • Michigan C Graham Glasgow's grandmother moved in with him

    Nick Bromberg at Dr. Saturday 1 day ago

    Michigan center Graham Glasgow was suspended from the team after heviolated his probation in March.

    His probation stemmed from a DUI arrest in 2014. The probation violation came when he was caught drinking around St. Patrick's Day. Former Michigan coach Brady Hoke was in charge when he was arrested, and the violation came shortly into current coach Jim Harbaugh's tenure.

    Harbaugh had an outside-the-box idea to help Glasgow. From the Detroit News:

    Harbaugh phoned Glasgow’s father, Steve, and they discussed options. The first plan was to have Glasgow move back into the dorms, but a fifth-year senior moving into South Quad with freshmen didn’t seem like the right solution.

    Enter a 5-foot-1 1/2 grandmother, called “the little Italian” in some circles.

  • Key from Key & Peele imitated James Franklin at a team meeting (Video)

    Nick Bromberg at Dr. Saturday 1 day ago

    Keegan-Michael Key does a damn good James Franklin impersonation.

    The man commonly known as Key from the comedy show Key & Peele, is a Penn State alum. He's also the grand marshal of Penn State's Homecoming this week, so he and Franklin decided to pull a trick on the team. Instead of Franklin, Key "led" a team meeting.

    [Check out Dr. Saturday on Tumblr for things you won’t see on the blog]

    The players certainly enjoyed it, didn't they? Key had Franklin's mannerisms down pretty well, including his sayings and his "stiff handshake" with the look.

    The Key & Peele show debuted in 2012 on Comedy Central and had its last episode in September.

    Penn State plays Indiana on Saturday.

  • Matt Kenseth wins pole at Charlotte

    Nick Bromberg at From The Marbles 1 day ago

    Matt Kenseth set a career record Thursday night at Charlotte.

    Kenseth, the driver who accumulated the most points over the first three races of the Chase, won the pole for Saturday night's fourth race of the Chase. It's his fourth pole of the 2015 season; he's never had more than three in any of his 17 previous Sprint Cup Series seasons.

    It's also his second pole at Charlotte in 2015. Kenseth won the pole for the Coca-Cola 600 in May and finished fourth. He'll be joined on the front row by teammate Kyle Busch.

    All four of Joe Gibbs Racing's cars made it to the final round of qualifying. Denny Hamlin will start fifth and Carl Edwards, who won the 600, will start eighth.

    Joey Logano starts third and Greg Biffle, the first driver on the grid who isn't in the Chase, will start fourth.

    Nine of the 12 current Chase drivers are in the top 12. It's 10 of the 16 drivers who qualified for the Chase if you count Jimmie Johnson, who qualified seventh.

    The rest of the Chasers in the top 12 are Kurt Busch (6th), Ryan Newman (10th), Kevin Harvick (11th) and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (12th).
